Some of my E-M1 shots

I have uploaded a selection of E-M1 shots to my FTU gallery here:

http://fourthirds-user.com/galleries...ry.php?cat=550

Here are some of them:

Note - all from in-camera JPEGs (Super Fine), Noise Filter set to OFF. No noise reduction in Lightroom on any shots.



35-100 f/2.0 - first in a 23 frame continuous sequence (C-AF)



35-100 f/2.0 - last in a 23 frame continuous sequence (C-AF) and cropped to just 3 megapixels.



45mm f/1.8, artificial light, auto white balance, @f/1.8, 1/30th sec, slight crop.



Female pheasant at Rutland Water - 300mm f/2.8 w/EC-14 converter (cropped)



300mm f/2.8 w/EC-14 converter (uncropped)



300mm f/2.8 - taken by Andy Elliot and processed and cropped by me.



m.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro - 1/2 second exposure hand-held! ISO 1600

Comments very welcome!

Ian

Re: Some of my E-M1 shots

Thanks Ian good mix
does the ec14 have any negative effect on the focussing? Did you use any steady (mono/tripod) for the pheasant?

Re: Some of my E-M1 shots

The EC-14 was absolutely fine on the 300, in fact we suspect the 300 on its own exhibited a little back-focus (which can be corrected on the E-M1) but it was spot on with the EC-14 fitted. This was using Andy's 300 mounted on his gimbal head tripod from inside one of the hides at Rutland Water.

Re: Some of my E-M1 shots

Lovely series of shots Ian, the first got a wow reaction and they just got better as I scrolled down. I think No 3 & 4 are my favourites. Shame the 300mm is so expensive, good advert for your hire service though

Re: Some of my E-M1 shots

Thanks for posting these Ian. They are a great selection and give a very good idea of the camera's capabilities. I am trying to get my head around the various m4/3 lenses and am particularly impressed by the portrait taken with the 45mm. It seems to be an excellent lens for the money.

It is - it has many fans on here. Including me, it's really useful for gigs where 45mm is long enough.

Ciao ... John
